Ombudsman Educational Services provides alternative education programs for high school students who have dropped out or who are at risk of dropping out of school.  A flexible schedule with morning, afternoon, and full time sessions means students don’t have to choose between life and school. Ombudsman offers academic, social and behavioral support so that students earn their high school diplomas and are prepared to make positive choices about the future.  Ombudsman utilizes a number of research-based curriculum resources to deliver its instructional model. Initial and ongoing teacher-led instruction is tailored to ensure each student earns the necessary credits to arrive at graduation in accordance with his or her success plan. Ombudsman’s rigorous and relevant academic programs are accredited by AdvancED and aligned to Common Core and state-specific standards.
